The kitchen was setup very well for cooking with lots of space, pots, plates, cutleries, electric stoves and a gas BBQ. Convenient to clean up too with dishbrush, drying rack, specific towel for drying hands and separation of rubbish for composting and recycling. Mountain bikes were free to hire and the staff were great in preparing them and advising on where to cycle.
